Man I flew on hyperlobby tonight and it is loaded with some of the most immature people ever.
i used to play online and have fun no i just get angry.
one server was loaded with guys who flipped on all the lights and wing tip smoke as soon as i got within range!
and the language was unbelievable swearing up the ya ha, it was embarrasing to me.
any Team work is gone entirely. i flew on a server with a squad the squad requested that all none squad members goe red, ok fair but i know what that means they are going to work together. and they did. they split off into groups of 2 and worked together perfect. but the blue side i was stuck on was so haphazerd it was amazing. only one other blue member wanted to work together, and we did ok together. but the others were rude. I was on the taxiway on one side of the strip and my wingy was on the other. I waited to revup for my take off roll until he was ready. our strategy was to take off togetger and form up for maximum protection. while i was waiting another "TEAM MEMBER" i use that frase loosly. came up behind me and fired all his rounds into me killing me Than he typed in "move" i was there for 30sec tops and he wasnt even useing the taxiways..
I need to fly with a squad for consistancy but who? the squad i flew agianst worked well together but they were jerks. I want TEAMWORK, STRATEGY, MATURITY and most important fun people who know this is just a game and should be enjoyed. WHERE are these people i used to fly with them but now they are gone, or hiding.

Check out the squadrons forum, link at the top of the page. Also, spend a bit more time in your favourite lobby and work out which squads that are on at times available to you suit your style.

Thats why I usually do coops... I was in a DF server last night where the red side was restricted to P-51Cs,P-47s,P-40s.IL2s and some other bird I cant remember... all the blue side had Ki-84s...one guy had a Stuka.... needless to say...you know how that went. I'm no Ace anyway... I get shot down more often than Id like... but Id like to have a fighting chance.... coops are the way to go. The rooty poots and kids love the DF servers and to find a decent one you may have tyo hit a few.. I've had some fun on 54th DF servers...at least Cattail's and a few others..... but coops are what I like.

I agree with Bearcat...everyone in the super Ki sure can ruin a game causing it to become annoying and boring at the sametime. I fly US planes 99% of the time, the JUG mostly and find myself having to goto 9000 meters to stand a fighting chance. Just recently we have found the pleasure of flying coops mostly. After almost 3 years I finally found out where the real fun is http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It`s funny, but like most others here, I made an unconscous decision NOT to join dogfight servers. It is simply no fun. Greedy people grabbing whatever they can, thinking it`s cool to type long swear words over and over again!

I might check GG, but mostly it`s COOPs or Squad Coops, Squad Dog servers.

Coops in hyperlooby are fun. The guys will give you their comms if you behave and don't muck up. You just have to be outgoing and jump in Coop 1 when someone puts up a mission and go from there. Stay away from the DF server until you meet some guys in Coops and then go in DF "with" them, not alone. Going into a DF server alone for the average online fighter is just like reaching for the soap in a prison shower. You would be asking for it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

it all happened when the cs crowd showed up. the original IL2 was great. Lots of respect, and no little whiney kiddies who think calling you "gay" is some major insult. Too bad those days are gone. When i was young, if you were gay, you were just happy.

I would have to agree...coop(or campaigning online) is the way to go. Whether or not you fly with a squad. Dogfight is just a FB(& flight sim) term for deathmatch. Im not into deathmatch. Then again...to each thier own. &lt;shrug&gt;

I don't fly on HL DF servers at all. I did allot of coop stuff for a while. But now I've hooked in with a squadron with older, mature types, like me. Since then, I fly offline until we get together on Saturday evenings for up to 6 hours of fun and teamwork. Do the squad thing. But make sure you don't grab hold to the first one that accepts you. Make sure that you are hooking up with others more inline to what you are looking for, along with age and maturity. Good luck! S!

Yep, the first year or so with this baby on Hyperlobby was genuinely fun.

But ya know it had to happen. They bargain basement the price, add a few "super" rides for the kiddies, and viola, ya got the Zone crowd showing up in droves. You can still find a few good servers, DF or otherwise, but the atmosphere of many rooms is sandlot mentality at its best.

For those too young http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif or those that have never tried CFS1, the Zone is a magical place that is inhabited nowdays by mental midgets in their mighty flying machines......

Yeah, well I never understood why anyone would fly a lot of DF anyway - no immersion. I keep UT2004 Demo on my rig in case I want some brainless reflex action for a few minutes. But each to his/her own!
